Thomas Merton on the Dawn Chorus


‘For the birds there is not a time that they tell, but the “point vierge”, the virgin point between darkness and light, between non-being and being. You can tell yourself the time by their waking, if you are experienced. But that is your folly, not theirs.’

Thomas Merton, from Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander
